Hey Blogland,

Well I'm making a concious effort to blog more in my OU blog, I feel like I've neglected you lot somewhat and I never intended it.

So at the moment I'm thinking about quitting A326. I seriously am not enjoying it, it just isn't what I expected and I'm far more behind than I ever intended with it. So on Monday I will be ringing up the OU and quitting that module but I'll still be doing DD306 and it means I can dedicate more of my time to the rest of it and hopefully get my grade up. The in October I plan on starting A327 and doing DD101 and then that'll complete my degree and think this is much better and I don't know why I didn't think of it before.

For those of you that are wondering about my health, I am getting worse but it'll will continue to be that way and I have accepted that. The only thing we can do now is hope I get my call in time. It's been 10 months since I was added and I would definitley say quality of life is worse and being able to do things and all that has gone downhill, but we all knew it would and I try to make sure I remember that. Most of my days are spent sleeping now I sleep at least 18 hours a day now which is also affecting my studying but I really do just hope more brave people sign the register and talk to their families about what they want.

I really want to go into schools and educate teenagers about organ donation because I really feel like they don't know enough about it and if you target the kids then it's more likely to become the norm to talk about donating organs rather than a taboo subject that no-one wants to address because they want to avoid talking about death. So I'm going to get in contact with some schools in my area and see if they will let me go in and talk in an assembly or PSHE class with probably yr 10's and above and I really think this would help get people talking because parents probably wouldn't bring it up to their kids but kids would probably just blurt it out smile.

So guys I hope you are all doing fabulously and I wil write again soon smile

Stacie xoxo
